LivingstonThe town of Livingston, Montana is where the Absaroka Mountain range gives way to plains that stretch to the horizon. Originally named Clark City, after William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the town's name was later changed in recognition of the Northern Pacific Railway executive Crawford Livingston. The Shoshone, Bannock, Blackfoot and Crow Indians called the area "The Valley of the Flowers" and it was considered sacred territory used for hunting.

Established in 1882 the city initially functioned as a service center for the steam locomotives headed west over Bozeman Pass. Today, many of the town's original buildings can still be seen. The city has worked hard to preserve its Old West character, which is evident in its restored downtown area with it's original storefronts housing an eclectic blend of shops, museums, galleries and restaurants.

The Livingston Depot, which was the original 1902 train station, is now a railroad museum. The Yellowstone Gateway Museum  is home to one of the oldest North American archeological sites and documents the history of Yellowstone and other parts of the western United States.
